Rushed Re-Entry: Getting Ready For The Manufacturing Surge

When the economy eventually does resurface, an almighty race will begin. Companies will fight tooth and nail, to once again, rule their respective roosts. They want to be the first to come back online and the first to rapidly meet sales goals and project deadlines again. The key for the manufacturing sector will be, is to have their assets ready for the surge. It’s vital that you rethink your product line, the floor, and the design of the overall factory. You can do this in many ways but we recommend that you think about how you could expand and speed up the production line and make your employees work faster.

Raw material procurement

Get ready for a major change in the raw materials sector. It’s going to become much more localized to everyone’s nations. There are a number of factors for this, principally, that China is no longer going to be favored so highly. At least, that is what trends seem to suggest. The other factor that plays into this is, the currencies of major nations are a lot weaker, making imports difficult. So your raw material procurement plan has to be adapted to buying from the region. If you are a company in Europe, then perhaps you should buy British steel, German gas, or French coal. Buy locally and don’t depend on worldwide imports all the time.


The hard drive

Manufacturing companies will be trying to meet the surging head-on and that means, focusing their employees to hit targets. Inevitably, your tools will be worn out quickly if they do not get the cooling and cleaning they need. These rotary vane compressors suppliers have products that allow you to cool tools thanks to the air pressure made by the compressors which can then be used to pump cooling liquids. Werther you have drills, cutters, or saws, cooling them as they work is essential to their longevity. The hard drive that your factory will be experiencing once orders start coming back in, will depend on tools working long and hard too.

Staggered workdays

Large and small firms are coming to realize that, the only way they can get their employees back into the office or back onto the production line, is to stagger their reentry. This way, your employees will feel safer, and also, you get to have some time with each ‘batch’ or team of employees. Departments can become familiar with one another again, and it can mean that days are particularly focussed on one team, one project, or task. Slowly but surely, as the weeks go by, you shall be back up to full capacity. But no business is going to go from 0 to 100 once the restrictions by governments are lifted. Just not going to happen!

Get ready for the manufacturing surge once the lockdowns are over. It’s going to be business as usual, but it will take a little time for production lines to get back to normal themselves. Be prepared by implementing some of these tips.
